Elected officials and local dignitaries will be on hand to celebrate Women’s History Month at Slater Mill in Pawtucket Monday.
The event will also address economic issues for women. Gendered wage gaps remain persistent in the Ocean State. That’s according to data from the Women’s Fund of Rhode Island, the advocacy non-profit sponsoring the event.
Featured guest, U.S. Senator Jack Reed, says that makes Slater Mill especially appropriate, due to female mill workers’ early fights for equity.
